A 10,000 ft view with skiing to match

Jupiter Bowl was the best skiing in all 3 resorts and worth the short hike from the top of the lift. Challenging terrain with great snow and uncrowded skiing or lift lines.

The ride to the peak, followed by the drop into the many bowls and chutes are difficult to beat in North America. Truly one of the great ski mountains!

This peak is a fairly easy hike in the summer when starting from Guardsman Pass, between the Park City area and the Big Cottonwood Canyon ski areas of Brighton and Solitude.

Ok, the real way to get to Jupiter Peak in the summertime is to hike up from the resort parking lot. Try heading up Spiro trail (though avoid downhill bikers), up to Eagle, then on up Crescent Ridge. It's a bear of a hike but you'll be thrilled when you get to the top. You'll need to carry plenty of... More

Jupiter Peak is the highest peak in the area. You have to hike past the lift, but it is worth it for the turns. Also, hiking up here off of the mid mountain train in the summer gives great views of the entire region.

We love the top of Jupiter Peak. We hike there in the summer from Guardsman's pass and we hike in the winter from McKonkey's. There are several winter routes down, so don't be intimidated too much by the challenge. If you can ski the McKonkey's bowl, there should be a line for you, but be warned, it is a decent... More

The snow has finally arrived in great enough depth to cover most, but not all, of the rocks, and the skiing off the Jupiter lift is the best of the year so far.

Beware beginners! This is definitely the most fun part of Park City, ungroomed and lots of tree tracks!

Great vertical, great snow and short lift lines. Why go anywhere else? Despite reports, snow is fine and there are very few exposed areas. we would like three feet, but all is OK right now! Come and have fun.
